Lake Atitlán Sightseeing Cruise with Transport from Guatemala City

20 reviews
Swap the bustle of Guatemala City for the serene vistas of Lake Atitlan (Lake Atitlan) on this full-day tour, including hotel pick-up. Admire the trio of volcanoes that stand watch over the lake – Volcan San Pedro, Volcan Atitlan and Volcan Toliman – as you cruise across Lake Atitlan and explore the lakeside villages. Shop for handicrafts and unique souvenirs in lively Panajachel, tuck into a typical Guatemalan lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) and witness the culture and traditions of the Tzutujil people in Santiago de Atitlán.

The morning of our last day in San Pedro was the cooking class with Anita Cortez of Mayan Kitchen Cooking Class, so after breakfast, we left for San Pedro Spanish School School to congregate with the rest. Anita was meeting us there. The trip to the market was an experience itself. Anita distributed baskets and told us about the recycling and conservation efforts of the San Pedro government. She gave us options for the dishes to be prepared and we chose jocon de pollo [green chicken stew], chilaquilas [stir-fried sliced chayote coated with eggs], guacamole, rellenitos de platano for dessert, and horchata [milky drink made with nuts and seeds]. After gathering the ingredients we needed, we walked to Anita's lovely home with a view to begin preparing for our cooking class. She first laid all the ingredients on the long table and introduced them, including five varieties of banana. Anita was a great coordinator and she made sure everyone's hands were busy doing something. While the ladies were busy preparing the ingredients for the guacamole dip, I was tasked to chop the celery, cilantro, and mint leaves for the jocon de pollo sauce. Soon the guacamole was ready and we dipped chips in it to enjoy. Donning the aprons with native Guatemalan patterns, all of us took wacky shots a la "the fighting chefs". Then, we continued with the next part of our cooking. The girls were assigned to mash and mold the plantains for our dessert while I was tasked to deep fry them. Can you believe the whole platter of plantains was cooked by me? The proof of the pudding is in the eating. We were ready to eat what we had prepared. Our plates were all set facing the view of the lake and mountains and Anita sat opposite us. The dishes were splendid. The cooking class was a most wonderful experience and Anita was beyond great. I recommend Mayan Kitchen Cooking Class to anyone visiting Lake Atitlan.

Our family had a great day with Anita from the time she met our boat and we picked the menu of the day til our post-lunch visit to the weaving co-op. We enjoyed the market visit and then, prepped a delicious pre-lunch snack of guacomole. Then, it was all hands on deck to prepare and cook our delicious meal. We were 7 people and we were all kept busy, following Anita's efficient instructions. We were also very interested in Anita's stories about her own life and the co-op. It was an educational and satisfying day. We would definitely recommend this experience. It's a great activity to include in your visit to lake Atitlan.

Our cooking class with Anita was one of the highlights of our entire trip in Guatemala! The experience of shopping with her in the market was so much fun, and a great way to experience the local culture. The food we made was delicious, but more than that, it was so wonderful to get to know Anita, and to hear her inspiring story, and the impact that she has had on her town in Lake Atitlan. Anita creates such a warm, fun, and inviting atmosphere. We had an amazing time, learned so much, and would HIGHLY recommend taking the class!

Anita is a kitchen super star. Meeting us in the local market she quickly organized us and had us picking up ingredients for our pepian dish. Anita runs the cooking classes out of her kitchen which she has modified for cooking with large groups. She was an delightful whirlwind in the kitchen coaching us through every step of the meal. Anita is an excellent teacher making cooking an unfamiliar dish very fun and easy. The food was amazing as well!
